Everyone here has a problem or confused as such wat to do with their partner. U people r lucky that u have someone to see u, to help u, to talk to. Consider urself lucky. All r not blessed so well. I am one of those unlucky ones. I dont have a girlfriend...neither had. I loved a girl a long time ago. But it was one sided. She said no. After that all my confidence and power to approach drained. I am 20...and still single. Help me with a few tips if u can spare a little bit of time.

I once felt like you do now. Alone and isolated. I don't know if you believe in any God but I prayed for him to give me some hope or for someone to come into my life. It happened, literally the next day. I have not felt alone since that day, it has been 10 years. Say a prayer, you will be amazed.
That's an awful heavy burden to place on someone...to expect a girl to lift you out of depression and give you the will to live.
I think you need to be mentally and emotionally healthy first, otherwise you will be placing the responsibility of your life on someone else. And that's just too huge.
Have you tried any therapy? You are only 20, that is awful young to decide that life is not worth living or that you are nothing somehow because you haven't found a love partner yet. How about some therapy?

rkysh: While I don't know exactly what you're going through, I can appreciate being lonely and feeling like there is no end in site. My girlfriend and I of seven years broke up about 3 years ago and I was destroyed. I thought there was nothing for me as I really felt like she was "the one". I stayed at home, I didn't do anything and was so completely depressed. Over time, I started to feel a bit better but I wasn't looking for anything.
Life is a precious gift that you only get once. Please don't waste it
Keep yourself active and busy, don't allow yourself time to sit around and think to far into things. I assure you that your life will start to fall into place, but you must believe that it will. If you don't, you will continue to fall into this deep depression that you are currently in.
Keep your head up, keep on smiling and go out there and enjoy your life. Life is too short to spend depressed like you are right now.

I agree with RedNeon. Another person cannot make you happy. You would be less lonely, but you cannot place the burden on another person of making you happy. Only you can make you happy. In most cases, that's a decision you make- to be happy or not. If you have a chemical imbalance in the brain then it's a physical problem and you might require medication, but again that is a decision you would have to make. The only thing other people can offer you is companionship- not happiness.
The grass is always greener, people always want what other people have. So, people who don't have a relationship want one while people who do have relationships often are having so many problems that they don't want to be in it anymore but can't get out of it for various reasons. Being in a relationship NEVER automatically makes people happy. In fact, it adds another layer of complexity to your existance because you have to worry now about both yourself and the other person for every decision you make while you're in that relationship.
I've been in several long term relationships, unfortunately with guys who did not represent themselves truthfully and started showing their true colors only after we had been together for a while. Unfortunately that seems to be the way it goes in relationships. The only thing is, there are some things that people can live with (like maybe if the guy doesn't put the toilet seat down) and other things that are absolute and total dealbreakers (like losers who use drugs or cheat). The problem is, you never really know a person for real until they start being themselves, which can take time if they're really good at hiding it (which unfortunately most people are).
My point to you is, you're not really missing out on much. Ok sure it's nice to have a companion sometimes. But it's better to have a companion who isn't a complete tool like so many people are out there. And unfortunately, the true and geniune down to earth types are very hard to find because there are so many more idiots out there. You have to wade through a lot of losers before you find someone who is actually worth your time. So, that's why I'm saying you're not really missing out on much.
If you want a true companion who will stay completely loyal to you and will absolutely never let you down, get a dog or a cat. They are the only ones who will literally never let you down. But people, you can't trust people too much unless they prove themselves to be worthy of your trust. Even then, you'd be surprised at how many people are married for 40 plus years to someone never knowing until later that their spouse is some kind of freak or weirdo that has been doing something shady for a long time behind their back. That kind of thing happens a lot. Like I said, you're not missing much by not having anyone. You need to stop placing so much importance on something that would only complicate and add stress to your life.
exactly. I also dont feel like going out or meeting someone. I am at my house most of the time. I try to keep me busy all the time. But sometimes there is nothing to do and all these things kill me. Btw thanks :-)
I understand that you feel lonely, but you have to CHOOSE to accept the way things are and do your best to stay positive. In the future when you do finally meet a potential girl you're interested in, she could be turned off by your 'pessimistic' outlook on life. People will pick up on the vibes you're putting out.
So stay positive, stay optimistic and try to be patient. The time just hasn't arrived yet.
By the way, all my old boyfriends caused me alot more heartbreak than anything else. It's like that saying, 'Be careful what you wish for", I know it's a little cliche, but there's truth to it.
hey its cool just be your self i was gonna marry a girl i dated for 3 years and we ended up breaking up. yeah it will hurt when a girl says no but look at it like this keep your head up there are plenty of women out there and if they say no just keep your head up and be proud of yourself. but you have to stay confident in your self im single right now to and i have met some girls that i was like dang she is pretty cute and you know what ive been told no so many times but i realized that if she says no right off then she's not the one you want to be with. just be you just dont rush it is all ive learned that as well you will find a girl man
